What a weird show. Jerry is clearly up for the proceedings: C/R and TOO take the set prizes respectively. The pre-drums looks as bad on paper as it gets, but it isn't the tragedy that similar set lists from the '90s are. If pre-drums was the future (oh boy!), then post-drums is the past with everything but The Wheel straight out of E '72. Only time Duprees was an encore, but it fits right in with this show as it so clearly is a tune that isn't one.
Excellent sound Q. and Jerry energy (Brent gets some props as well).

Worth checking out
Soundboard quality is fantastic. Playing quality is very good for the era. The issue is the set list, it's very disjointed and the boys open the second set with 4 weak choices in a row, including the debuts of Day Job, West LA and Far From Me. West LA is half baked to put it mildly. Keepers include a very crisp China Rider, Althea,, Other One, Black Peter and Duprees.

I keep coming back to this show. Brent is inspired, by what, i would love to know. His organ during the other one borders on black sabbath and insanity. Fuck, i wasnt born in the right era, these guys were a collective shaman on certain whimsical nights.

This is, imo, the best Althea there is.

My 1st Show - Thanks!
I'll never forget this one. After the intermission, over half the crowd stripped bare. It was hot and dusty, and Jerry seemed to have trouble breathing at times. I also seem to remember Peter Tosh playing at this show - does anybody remember that or am I trippin?

49 Out of 50 Stars!!
One of Jerry's greatest all-out extravaganza's every note of the way. Picture him up on stage just pickin' and grinnin' the whole day, and, as Hank Harrison said, "Soloing thru intermission."
The highlight of this show is the Other One. This is the paramount of all Other Ones.
And Brent is out of this world playin' keys and singin' and meshin' with Jerry and takin' charge when there's a lull ~ which there never is ~ 'cause Jerry and the band are peddle to the metal throughout.
Superb concert in every definition of superb.
Immaculate recording and presentation. Even the patches bespeak the resplendent nature of this concert.

The extra cassette gen gives this show some serious bottom end.
Fast, up tempo, strong show from the start with lots o phil.
The first set sizzles, loved the minglewood And even listened to the me & my uncle.
Odd combo for the start of set ii. And I can't f-ing stand dayjob. The west la has some inspired Jerry leads but he totally blows the lyrics and starts making them up. ( I know this is a super early rendition)
from the playin to the end of the show is more than I could ask for.
One of my favorite versions of Black Peter
fall 82 thumps!
